DNA results
It is identified at the Fascista genus level by DNA barcoding BOLD LPOKA693-09
This specimen is shown here: BOLD:AAH5567
(and it matches two other specimens submitted later)

This was apparently removed from BOLD:AAH5567. I suspect that because it only has 621 base pairs it got booted but it barcodes as specimens in that BIN. It also matches the description if I understand it. I think it can be safely moved to F. quinella.
